A few months ago, pictures of Deepika Padukone having a de-glam avatar went viral, from this movie. It was said to be the actress’ screen test but there has been no confirmation about it since.

Without any doubt, Ishaan debuting with Majidi’s film will add weight to his acting resume. There had been reports about Ishaan making his debut with Karan Johar’s Bollywood remake of the Marathi blockbuster Sairat. But seems that that plan didn’t find structure.
